Arch of Titus - Rome


Located on the Via Sacra, a few steps away from the Roman Forum, the Arch of Titus is a 1st century honorific arch, built by the Roman Emperor Domitian in around 82 AD to commemorate his late older brother Titus’ victory over the Jews in the Sack of Jerusalem in 70 AD. The reliefs depict the looting of the sacred articles taken from the Temple in Jerusalem and thus the arch forms an important part of Jewish history, too. Considering its age, the arch has survived extraordinary well – even to the extent that the inscription is still clearly visible. Moreover and is credited with providing the general model for many other triumphal arches, perhaps the most famous of these is the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.
